A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesired email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer excellent spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between five different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be re-sent to a designated email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
